Vickery Holman expands Exeter office

L-R: Mark Balchin, General Practice Surveyor, Samantha Johnson, Head of Valuation, John Tyas, Head of General Practice Exeter, Kate Robertson, General Practice Surveyor.

Property consultants Vickery Holman are responding to further growth across their 4 offices by taking on 2 general practice surveyors into their Valuation team in Exeter. Mark Balchin MRICS has over 5 years of experience in commercial property valuation and will be focusing on developing work in and around Dorset, while Kate Robertson is working towards her APC and will be supporting the Valuation team in Exeter.

Samantha Johnson, Head of Valuation, said ‘Our Valuation team across the South West has been flat out for all of 2021 and we’re expecting this activity to continue for the rest of the year. The impact of the pandemic has meant that many businesses are requiring valuations as part of refinancing deals, loan agreements or as a part of a sale. We’re delighted to welcome Mark and Kate to our team as part of our growth strategy for the business.’

John Tyas, Head of General Practice in Exeter, commented ‘We have been looking to expand our presence further east and with Mark joining, it enables us to achieve this with local knowledge expertly delivered.’

Vickery Holman is the leading property consultancy in the South West with over 20 RICS Registered Valuers and offices in Truro, Plymouth, Exeter and Bristol.
